Franklin & Marshall College invites applications for an inorganic chemistry tenure-track position beginning July 1, 2019.  

The rank will be Assistant Professor, but an appointment at the Associate level (without tenure) may be considered with appropriate qualifications. The position requires a Ph.D. in chemistry or a closely related field and calls for teaching inorganic and general chemistry lecture and lab, as well as possible contributions to general education (Connections or Natural Science in Perspective) and upper-level courses. The successful candidate will be expected to establish a productive research program that involves undergraduate students in inorganic chemistry, broadly defined, and contribute to the College’s shared governance. F&M provides institutional support, including competitive start-up funds, to support research programs.


The person selected for this tenure-track position may also be considered for a supplemental appointment as a Franklin & Marshall High Impact Emerging Scholar.  These are scholars who possess outstanding promise for inspiring and supporting the educational development of underrepresented minority students in a higher educational setting such as F&M.  Selected finalists that meet these additional qualifications, in addition to those outlined by this ad, may be nominated by the department as an F&M High Impact Emerging Scholar. If selected as a HIES, the person will receive an additional appointment that will begin as soon as the tenure-track appointment does.  The HIES program supports the acceleration of one's research trajectory with a reduced teaching load during the first several years of the pre-tenure period along with supportive mentoring to advance the scholar's research and professional development. Candidates interested in being considered for nomination should indicate their interest in their cover letter and highlight any previous work in this area in their diversity statement.

Candidates should submit the following items electronically via Interfolio (http://apply.interfolio.com/54940):  a cover letter, curriculum vitae, undergraduate and graduate transcript(s), teaching, diversity, and research statements, and teaching evaluations. Applicants must arrange for three letters of recommendation to be submitted directly to Interfolio by their recommenders. For full consideration, applications should be received by October 14, 2018.

Pursuant to cultivating an inclusive college community, the search committee will holistically assess the qualifications of each applicant.  We will consider an individual’s record working with students and colleagues with diverse perspectives, experiences, and backgrounds. We will also consider experience overcoming or helping others overcome barriers to academic success.
